Team Tuesday with Concord & 9th

(Our team uses affiliate links at no extra cost to you) 

Hey y'all!
It's Ceal, here. Today I am sharing some spring cards using Concord & 9th products. 
To make these cards I started with white card bases, black panels and white panels for the backgrounds. 
The first card uses a stencil. The Sticky Mats are a go to when I used stencils, you don't have to use any tape that could potentially mess up your card when you pull it off. 
The second card uses a turnabout which were made especially for the Original Misti. 
I place it in the misti and turned it 4 times using four different colors.

All products are listed below. 

Until next time <3

Better Latte Than Never

Hello, MISTI fans! Angie, here with a couple of coffee cards! You will be surprised I did not use more than one MISTI to create today's projects. You know how much I love using multiple MISTIs and leaving the stamps in the MISTIs until I am completely done. I pulled out my Memory MISTI this week and placed the stamps in the corners. The abstract paint stroke image is a single brush stroke stamp.  I inked the stamp and moved my paper up 3/4 of an inch for each brush stroke. Then I placed the sentiments in the lower corners of the Memory MISTI without taking the brush stroke off the MISTI. I ran out of time today, but I left the brush stroke stamp in the MISTI to make more cards with these fun sets. I will share them next time if I don't get distracted by a different stamp set!   

Did you know MISTI Sticky Mats are now in the Original, Memory, and Mini sizes? I am so excited to have the new Sticky Mat sizes!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Garden Friend

 Hello everyone! Anna here, greetings from the pacific northwest! The card I’m sharing today was made using a recently released stamp set from Impression Obsession. The set is filled with beautiful summer and garden themed images and sentiments perfect for making lovely cards.  

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using a permanent brown ink and watercolored the image with some shimmering watercolors. I used sentiments from the set to decorate the background. I splattered some gold and silver watercolor pigments over the card once everything was painted and assembled. I love the look of the splatters over the image! 
Using a Mini MISTI is my favorite way to stamp on watercolor paper. The texture of watercolor paper can be challenging to get a good impression without making multiple impressions. Thankfully, the Mini MISTI allows me to stamp an image several times, giving me the perfect impression for every project! 

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!
